Talk of one facial feature that arrests maximum attention and eyes will top the list. Knowing how to apply eye makeup impeccibly guarantees more than just a second look. Read on for some quick tricks.
Use primer: For a smoother and long-lasting appeal, apply a primer.
Blend well: The colours must flow smoothly and harmoniously from one shade to the other.
Triple effect: Use three colours for your eye shadow — the base colour, the main colour and the highlighter. Apply the base colour on your eyelids first, followed by the main colour and then highlight the crease of your eyes. Blend the highlighter at the outer edge of the crease to make eyes appear larger.
Use glitter: To dress up your eye make up, apply reflect eye glitter which is in a fine powered form. Shades such as antique gold and silver are in fashion.
Leave the browbone: Eye shadow on the browbone looks tad too much.
Right applicator: Use a premium applicator. Synthetic ones don’t help. They can also affect your skin.
Dab it: Always apply a pigment eye shadow in a dabbing motion to achieve better result.
